  • I haven’t eaten one in 40 years (give or take 3-4).

    Just saw one on TV, and it looked delicious.

    Do you eat them?
    How long has it been?
    Would you eat one today if it became available?

    :{)

    Edit
    Make no mistake, I’m not talking about an apple dipped in “caramel”, I’m talking about one dipped in that red hard candy.
    After seeing it on TV, I’m craving one.

  • I've never eaten a candied apple in my life. I haven't eaten an apple in any form for donkey's years.

    I last ate a doughnut (well, perhaps it was many more than one; heck, I was only eleven) in 1971, at an airshow to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Royal Australian Air Force, and I was so sick I've never touched one again. No idea why, but they revolt me forever, FWIW.

    Best airshow I ever saw, otherwise. We get very few in Adelaide, anyway - there bloody well better be one in 2021, for the RAAF's 100th Anniversary!

    Look what the Cat dragged in :{)

    Like I said, I haven’t eaten one in many years.
    Back in the day, was a very popular fall treat.

    I’ve actually looked around a bit since I made the post.

    Can’t find any local.
    Plenty of Carmel or chocolate dipped ones at places like RockyMountain chocolate factory but not the traditional candy apple.

    It’s actually the thing the color is named after.

    Still craving one, and may for a while.

    I’ll find one eventually, and probably be let down. Because no place has apples like Washington has apples.

    But I’m still on the hunt. If not for seeing one on the TV, wouldn’t be an issue but I can’t un-see it.

    Try one should you have the opportunity.

  • Naw. Dont do the hard crack teeth candied apples no more. Last did a carmel apple about 20 or so years ago. Was not too impressed any more. I think it was at the carnival that came to town and I had to have a beer to wash it down. :P

    Is that that nasty Red 40 sauce? No thank you. Caramel apple? Definitely a treat worth revisiting after many years without.

    Not sure what red 40 sauce is, and I’m not sure why they call it sauce in that video.
    Almost sounds as though that version stays soft.

    The candied Apple that I remember, the candy became hard and brittle, it cracked when you bit it.

  • No. That version turns hard after about 10 minutes. Here's another more detailed version. I liked the first video using the cinnamon sticks in it. So if you want cinnamon flavor, add the 2 sticks when you put it on the stove. Then remove them before you dip the apples. The sauce will be soft when hot, but work fast after you remove from the heat. I think she explains that at the end of this video.
